Lid Sensor Test enumerates on Tablets

In some rare cases you may find that Service Center is giving you the option to run the 'Lid Sensor Test' on a Tablet, despite the fact that this test is meant only to enumerate on laptops that have the capability of opening/closing the lid. Since the Lid Sensor Test is available to run as a test, it won't provide any benefit when using it on a tablet. In this case, it be best that you simply ignore this entry if it is present.

After researching the root of the issue, it appears that on these tablets the manufacturer is using a certain firmware which causes the Tablet's BIOS to report it as a laptop.

Due to the nature of the issue, we are unable to provide a fix at this time, but look forward to addressing it in future versions. We apologize for any inconvenience.
